Lionel Messi does not want Neymar to sign Real Madrid. FC Barcelona’s Argentine striker spoke of rumors about his former Brazilian team-mate and even told him of his fears of seeing him join the White House.
The rumor that sends Neymar to Real Madrid has been revived more beautiful in recent days, with the end of the season and the approach of the summer mercato. According to the Spanish press, the White House has the idea of trying everything to already debauch the Brazilian prodigy Paris Saint-Germain, only a year after his arrival against 222 million euros.
Obviously, we cannot imagine the club of the capital let his star go so fast, especially after spending so much money, but the world of football business sometimes takes turns for the less confusing. So why not?
The new coach of the Red and Blue, Thomas Tuchel, will no doubt have to work to convince his number 10 that he can be the coach capable of making a leap to the Parisians, mainly in the Champions League.
The former prodigy of Santos FC would have militated internally for Luis Enrique or Tite, two coaches who would have obviously allowed him to evolve in complete freedom in an ideal setting on the meadow. But it is the former Borussia Dortmund technician who was chosen, perhaps by default.
Then the two men will have to agree, the German being called to develop a project of play that will suit the South American diva, frustrated by that of Unai Emery.
But if Neymar is already thinking about leaving to find La Liga and Real Madrid… Because he will not return to FC Barcelona, the fault of conflicts still existing with the management of the club for stories of big money.
To the dismay of Lionel Messi apparently, who now hopes not to cross the road of his former teammate with the merengue tunic on his shoulders. “It would be horrible,” admits the Argentinian in front of the cameras of TyC Sports.
“Neymar represents a lot for Barca… Even though he left in difficult conditions, he won important titles with us. If he were to go to Real Madrid, it would be a real blow. Above all, he would make Real Madrid even stronger than it already is. And he knows what I think, I’ve already talked with him”.
Will former Blaugrana listen to his mentor?
